Our Bundle of Joy

We are thrilled to introduce our little one. Ryder Hart Call was born November 22 at noon. He weighed 7 pounds 11 ounces and is 19 1/2 inches long. He is healthy and we are so grateful. He is welcomed by all of these adoring older siblings.

Just one week left and a new little one will be joining our family. I am so excited that it is finally the week of because through the nine months some of those days are very long and it feels like forever away. One of my favorite things to do now is to look at the crib and know that shortly there will be a baby in it. What a miracle. The blanket in the crib was made by my Grandma. What a lucky baby to have a blanket handmade for him by this great-grandma.

Costumes and Candy

We had a great time for Halloween this year. The kids all liked their costumes and of course they have had a lot of fun eating all of their candy. Tanner as "Mario".
Cade as a "Harlem Globetrotter".
Haylie as her very own "Super Haylie".
Weston as a very spooky skelelton.

Weston's baptism day

Weston was baptized in September. It was a really special day for our family and Weston was so excited for his big day. He was all smiles as he entered the font and after he was baptized he had the biggest smile on his face. We are proud of him for his decision to follow our Savior.

April Fools

Way back on April 1st I had my kids call each of my siblings and my parents to tell them something! We've had some fun with April Fools in years past and I knew I had the best idea to fool them. Now that all of this time has passed I think they are finally believing us. Baby #5 is just one month away!
We led the kids on a scavanger hunt the morning we told them. At the end there was a "treasure box" filled with baby things. They were so confused at first and then so excited. They have been begging for a baby for years.

Spring Break in the City

We spent our Spring Break this year in New York. We visited and stayed with our wonderful friends the Peos. We had such a great time seeing them. The week started out with a fun Easter egg hunt on Easter morning. The Peos have an amazing, huge yard so it was the perfect place for a egg hunt. Thanks to the Peos for a fun week.
While in NYC we planned a trip to Philly. We took the train there for 2 days. We were lucky to have such amazing weather. We loved this city. We saw Betsy Ross' house, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Mint in Philadelphia and we went to an amazing Children Museum. The city is beautiful, clean and full of history. This is a picture of Haylie and Cade waiting to board the train.
The beautiful and historic Independence Hall.
The famous Liberty Bell. We checked out a few books from the library before our trip to Philly. It is amazing to learn the history of this famous bell. It is beautiful.
We ran into a few famous people in NY. Look closely and you will see Steve Carrell stepping out of his limo and onto the red carpet for his premier of "Date Night."

Haylie and Cade on the set of Regis and Kelly. I think they had a lot of fun seeing how a TV show is taped.
We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge one day. It was a hot, beautiful New York day. The bridge had amazing views of the city and really great pizza on the other side.

11 years old and A New Year Vegas Style

Cade has had big week. He turned 11 and earned his Webelos and become a full fledge boy scout. We sure love him and he adds so much excitment to our home. Happy Birthday Cade!
For New Year's Eve we headed to Vegas. I love this picture of Tanner showing Marisa around the town.
We ate dinner with my favorite brother at PF Chang's for his birthday.
All of these beautiful people are my relatives awaiting the water show at the Bellagio.Who knew that water could dance?
We decided to be adventurous and ring in the new year down on the strip. We made the trek with 3 of our kids and a niece and nephew. We saw some pretty interesting people and made some memories. The fireworks were amazing. I don't think the kids will ever forget being on the strip with thousands of others for the beginning of this decade.
Happy 2010!
